John Raines

John is married to Hattie, and they have one son, Faber Theodore (you can just call him Theo). They currently live in the Humboldt Park neighborhood in Chicago, but have had roots at Rez for a while. Hattie started attending as a youth (way back), and John began attending Rez as a grad student at Wheaton College in 2010. John has served in a variety of capacities at Rez and in the Chicago deanery, most recently serving in the city on the preaching and music teams for Logan Square Anglican and Immanuel Anglican churches over the past 3 years. He and Hattie are delighted to be coming back “home” to work alongside the gifted musicians and leaders of Church of the Resurrection. Aside from ministry, John’s professional background is in data analysis, emergency nursing, and crocodile handling. Just kidding about the crocodiles.
